It’s again time for the annual Children’s Eye Foundation photo contest for their calendar. The Children’s Eye Foundation is the foundation of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS).
The theme for this year’s photo contest is “Best Buddies to See You Through“. Once you submit a photo, people can vote on their favorites. The top 10 vote-getters will win a camera, and a panel of judges will choose from all submissions the photos that are featured in the calendar. Voting is open until August 31, 2014.
A number of kids from our community are featured in the calendar each year (of course they are – our kids are super cute!).
You can also vote for your favorite photo! You can vote for one photo once each day.
Updated, June 2, 2013: I’ve added photos at the bottom of this post that have been submitted from this community. Because of the way the photos are organized and displayed, there is no way for me to link directly to the page that a photo is currently on. You’ll need to page through to find the photo you like best. Please consider voting for one of these! You can vote for one photo each day.
If I’ve missed your photo, please leave a comment or email me (email@example.com).
It’s time once again for the Children’s Eye Foundation‘s annual photo contest for their Eyecare for Kids calendar. I really believe that our kids can be great advocates for children’s visual health and that they’re also undoubtedly good-looking enough to win photo contests, so I would really, really like to get some of our Little Four Eyes in this calendar, and I encourage you all to vote for entries with kids wearing glasses or dealing with vision issues.
If you enter a photo of your child, leave a comment with a link to the page with photo, and the title of the photo. I’ll add the links to this page so others can find it easily and vote for it if they wish.

There’s a new book for kids who need glasses, Arlo Needs Glasses, by Barney Salzberg. You can see the extremely adorable trailer video below:
I’ll be posting my own review in the next post. (I’ve posted it – 6/27/2012)
To celebrate the release of the book, the publisher, Workman, is holding a photo contest on Pinterest in which 5 participants can win an autographed copy of the book.
Share funny photo of your dog wearing glasses for a chance to win a signed copy of “Arlo Needs Glasses” by Barney Saltzberg. Be silly, but promise to not put your pup through too much embarrassment.
Enter between June 25 — July 31 by posting your photo on your Pinterest board with the hashtag #ArloNeedsGlasses. Then follow Workman’s board: www.pinterest.com/workmanpub. Workman will the post photos to the “My DogNeeds Glasses!” board: Pinterest.com/workmanpub/my-dog-needs-glasses.
Five photos with the most likes and re-pins by July 31st will win an autographed copy of “Arlo Needs Glasses from Workman”. Entrants must be U.S. residents.
You can read the full rules here.
Update #2: There have been some technical issues with voting. Any computer will be able to vote for a photo only once (not once a day, just once). This means that parents who have entered their child can’t bug friends and family to vote for their picture more than once.
If you haven’t already, please take a moment to look through the photos here and the photos on the site and vote for any that make you smile!
Update: Check out the photos below that have been submitted by readers. Click on any picture to be taken to the page to vote – please take a moment to vote for them or any other photos you like if you have a chance. And please leave a comment to let me know if you’ve also entered a picture so I can add it to the list! Scroll down for details about the contest and how to enter
It is once again time for the annual Children’s Eye Foundation’s photo contest. The photo contest is run each year to choose pictures for the foundation’s Eye Care for Eye Care calendar. Take a look at last year’s calendar, it’s a beautiful calendar, with a number of Little Four Eyes readers’ children included.
This year’s theme is “Jeepers, Creepers…Amazing Peepers.” The top ten vote-getting photos will win a digital camera. A panel of judges will also choose 12 photos from the submissions to use in the 2013 calendar.
If you do submit a photo, would you let me know by leaving a comment? I’ll start a post listing the photos that have been submitted by the community so that others can vote for them if they’d like.
Ficklets is running a holiday photo contest: “Show us your Twinkle Eyes” – with a great prize pack: 5 Ficklet charms, eyeglass case, microfiber cloth, Amazon gift card, and more. Check out the link above for more information on how to submit your child’s photo to enter. Pictures must be entered by December 5, with voting running from December 6 – 13. You can read our review of Ficklets here. (Ficklets have small pieces, so I would not recommend them for children under 3).
I mentioned a while back about the Prevent Blindness America “Most Beautiful Eyes” contest. The contest is in full swing now, and voting will continue until the end of the month.
The winner of the contest (chosen from a group of top vote-getters) will be the face of the Star Pupils program – a program designed to educate parents about the importance of vision health for their children.
I would LOVE to have a child in glasses represent that program. One of the concerns I hear so often from parents who learn their child needs glasses, is that their child’s eyes will be obscured, that others won’t see their child’s beautiful eyes. We know that’s not true – that our children’s eyes shine through their glasses. What a great way to show that, and to alleviate some of those fears: to have a child in glasses or a child with vision issues as the face of Star Pupils.
As voting is winding down, we don’t have a lot of time, but I know this community reaches a lot of people. Voting is easy, you don’t need register or log in anywhere, and you can vote for multiple entries (but only once a day for the same entry). Please join me in voting for our Little Four Eyes children!
I know of 7 entries from the Little Four Eyes community – if there are any others, please let me know (email me the link: ann @ shinypebble.com). Click on the photo to get to the voting page. Remember, you can vote for all of them, and you can vote everyday! Please feel free to share with others, too!
Two quick things to share with you all.
First, Amomofelly sent me three more coloring pages! They’re very sweet. I’ve put them up on the Gear page, check them out. As I mentioned in my previous post, I’d love to have some of these pages after they’ve been colored. Send photos or scans to me (ann @ shinypebble . com) to help celebrate our 3rd birthday.
Second, the Children’s Eye Foundation just announced the start of their third annual “I Care for Eye Care” photo contest. The theme this year is “visions of home.” The 12 photos with the most votes receive a digital camera, but more exciting for me is that photos are also chosen to be published in their 2012 calendar. I feel strongly that this calendar should include pictures of kids in glasses. And I also strongly believe that we have a lot of beautiful kids here. The last two years, we’ve had a lot of photos end up in the calendars. If you do submit a photo, let me know, and once voting starts, I’ll post links to our submissions, so we can support each other. Full rules for the contest are here.
